## Master calculus 1 using Python: derivatives and applications Course

**Develop a deep understanding and intuition for calculus. Solve problems and implement algorithms by hand and in Python.**

Calculus is a beautiful topic in mathematics. No, really! At its heart, calculus is about change. Life is full of change, and calculus is the language that humans developed (invented or discovered — that’s an ongoing debate!) to understand how physical, biological, and abstract systems change. Calculus is more than just some equations you have to memorize; it’s a way of looking at the world and trying to understand how the tiniest infinitesimal changes can lead to gigantic complexity bigger than the imagination.

**Why learn calculus?**

There are three reasons to learn calculus.

- It has applications for understanding data science and machine-learning algorithms, but it’s also a beautiful topic in its own right.
- Learning math will train your critical thinking and reasoning skills. Any branch of mathematics will train your brain, but calculus especially so, because doing calculus is a lot of like running scientific experiments — generate hypotheses, test them in experiments by holding variables constant, and measuring the output.
- It’s a better hobby than sitting around watching netflix. Seriously. Learning math will help protect you from age-related cognitive decline. Challenge your mind to keep it sharp!

**Learn calculus the traditional way or the modern way?**

So, how do you learn calculus? You can learn it the way most people do — by watching someone else scratch on a chalkboard while you furiously take notes and try to decipher their sloppy handwriting, all the while having a little voice in your head telling you that you don’t get it because you’re not smart enough.

Or you can try a different approach.

I follow the maxim “you can learn a lot of math with a bit of coding.” In this course, you will use Python (mostly the numpy and sympy libraries) as a novel tool to help you learn concepts, proofs, visualizations, and algorithms in calculus.

**There are three reasons to use Python to learn calculus:**

- Practical applications: Calculus is essential for understanding data science, machine learning, deep learning, computational science, and many other fields.
- Mental exercise: Learning calculus, particularly in combination with Python, will train your critical thinking and reasoning skills.
- Lifelong benefits: Engaging your mind with calculus can help protect against age-related cognitive decline and offer a fulfilling alternative to passive leisure activities.
